Please do share your holiday traditions

This year we are doing the drive and eat routine: from Boston to Vermont on Thursday. From Vermont to Brooklyn on Friday for another big meal. From Brooklyn to Manhattan on Saturday, where we've already pleaded: "please no more food." We roll on home on Sunday.
So what do you eat if not turkey? Brisket?

Hope all your Thanksgiving travel went well.
Since my family doesn't eat Turkey, we usually eat capon, or something else entirely -- standing rib roast is a favorite treat. And brisket has certainly made an appearance.
I just learned something interesting from friends of mine who recently moved to NY from Toronto, which is that Canadian Jews don't tend to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving (which is held back in October). I thought that was really fascinating, because my experience in the US is that Jews embrace Thanksgiving as a holiday that we can celebrate with our neighbors of other religions. Any thoughts as to why this might be?
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
